We believe the current Dangerous Dog Law is good, if properly enforced, and with increased public education on its use. As a compromise, we will not oppose the language that would label a dog dangerous after its first bite involving injury or death. However, in return we want the language automatically charging the owner or keeper with harboring a dangerous dog in this instance, dropped.
Senator Killion's staff and Senate Ag Committee staff seem to be unwilling to compromise, so this will likely pass the Senate Ag Committee. Contact your PA State Senators now to voice your concerns with SB798.

A huge thank you to the members of the Penn Treaty Kennel Club for their donation of $750 to the PA State Animal Response Team for continued operations expenses.  With this donation, the total given to PASART by the PA Federation of Dog Clubs and its member canine organizations to $1600!  We are certainly doing our part to keep this vital emergency program in place for our dogs and their owners going forward.
